January 10, 2013
San Luis Obispo Fire Department investigators discovered a hash conversion lab at a trailer that was engulfed in flames Wednesday night following several explosions.
Four fire trucks and a total of 25 firefighters worked to quickly extinguish the blaze that had already spread from the double-wide on the 1700 block of Lynn Drive to a neighboring trailer. Several explosions shook nearby homes and businesses at the Laguna Shopping Center.
Fire department investigators discovered a plethora of butane canisters and a large amount of marijuana in the home.
Officers arrested the homeowner, 55-year-old Candice Garcia, for possession and manufacturing hash and booked her into the San Luis Obispo County Jail. Her bail has been set at $500,000.
